HydraNautics has introduced a new, innovative way to steer your houseboat. The HydraNautics Steering System allows houseboat owners to simply pushing a button on your key fob remote, or using a joystick control, house boaters can make turns without ever touching the wheel. owners of HydraNautics stern thrusters have been able to use a remote to steer their boat by activating the thruster. Now, instead of activating the thruster, owners can turn the outdrives.
Many houseboats are equipped with hydraulic steering and HydraNautics uses the existing system with a specially built pump that can be activated by the wireless fob remote or joystick and turn the rudders or outdrive in any direction you choose to go. While HydraNautics steering system is disengaged, the steering wheel works as it normally would. The HydraNautics Steering System kit may be purchased for owners that wish to do the install work themselves. (859-885-5545/www.thrusterman.com)
